One of the best DIPAs I have ever had. It's called Felony because it's 10% and by tasting you'd think it was a 4%, and by the time you realize it's 10%, you would have committed a Felony! It's an awesome beer, and I would recommend this to even the non-IPA drinkers.

(best by 01/17/15 - poured into a balloon)

L: the clearest brew I've seen by Prism - only a mild, dull-polished haze... ultra-frothy/sudsy white foam with a soapy shine, doesn't stay long in pad-form - collects as many larger bubbles on one edge of the glass... I do believe this beer has legs

S: their signature character can be found here - must be the yeast... woody malts, exotic flowers, dried grapefruit peel... little bit of perfumy booze poking through in the back... slight peppery notes highlighting the fruity aromas, as well as a touch of hippy b.o.

T: lemon/yellow-grapefruit, herbal-like, concentrated bitterness to the hops that stuns the tongue, while the dry, toasty malts sneak around its sides and dance on the back of the palate... the bitterness stings, while the alcohol rubs salt in the wound - after several sips, all that's left to taste is high-test lemon polish - good stuff, though

F: has Prism's characteristic porcelain smoothness in its light-medium body and soft, dry finish... very easy drinking, even at 10%

O: not all that bad... if their goal was to make the most bracingly-bitter IPA they could, I think they've done it

DATE REVIEWED: August 31, 2014... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: Labor Day celebration begins early... APPEARANCE: intimidating dark, murky burnt sienna body that hoists thick, foamy off-white head; lacing stratifies beautifully and with balance... AROMA: explosive hop bomb that borders on pure syrup--but the cone is legitimately a west coast varietal; welcoming despite its intensity... PALATE: full-bodied, somewhat crunchy--but highly drinkable at 10 ABV! incredibly long aftertaste... TASTE: the hops are strong though not aromatic; the malts are present but not noticeable; a rather middling effect, with heat overtaking the profile ...OVERALL: impossible to say this is better than Two-Hearted or Heavy Seas, but third place in the roommates IPA challenge isn’t too shabby considering the competition--this packs a warming wallop, a powerful albeit more singular profile than other BIG IPAs...
